Battle the Bulge with Battle Ropes

While most of the folks I know are polishing off that last bit of Thanksgiving dinner and trying hard to breathe, I’m trying not to freak out about working with these torture devices bright and early tomorrow. 😦 My friend is all jazzed about switching up our workouts, and the first thing she wants to do is take on the Battle Ropes. Ugh.

Battle Ropes are no joke. The key to getting these heavy monstrosities off the ground and into a rhythmic repetition is core strength. The arms are important, but they really don’t work without a strong core. Gah, I really don’t want to do this tomorrow. I really don’t.

BUT…

Yeah.  Because here’s the thing: I remember the first time I didn’t want to run. Now I’m like, what’s 6 miles? Impossible is nothing. Same with aerials, yoga, and everything else that comes like water to me these days. I know I can do it.

So I’m gonna do it…

And that’s that…

Or something.

    Did you get to it?

  3. Yes ma’am I did! 😀 I’ve done it several times since then. Definitely takes practice. I can only last a few reps.
